We were just kids,
playing in our sand box,
laughing at the puppy as he jumped through the sprinklers.
All we were concerned about was convincing mama to let us stay outside a little longer.
But then the skies turned darker,
and the sun hid itself behind the clouds.
And suddenly everything was different.
The sandbox was now disheveled and rotted,
The puppy was now moving at a slower pace, sleeping his life away.
All we are concerned with now is how we are going to make it from one day to the next,
without falling apart completely.
